    Farmer’s Cheese

    Spring Picnic Asparagus Salad

We created this recipe to honor both such momentous occasions. Ingredients: 4 cups water ½  pound […]

    Champagne Punch

    BY:Eben Klemm

    When we think of cocktails as being elegant and classy, we are considering a completely twentieth century construction based on Hollywood’s representation of the Prohibition Era.  Cocktails in the Victorian Era were, in general, not consumed in polite society, and certainly not for Mixed Company.  There were no Fred and Gingers in the 1870s enjoying […]

    The Snapdragon

    BY:Eben Klemm

      Brent and Josh are always coming up with new recipes with items harvested fresh from the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Garden, so I thought I’d develop a cocktail fresh from the spring garden. I’m not a huge fan of most flavored vodkas.  Even from the best ingredients, it always seems a little artificial to me.  […]

    Beekman 1802 Cajeta

    BY:Josh and Brent

    When thinking of new products for Beekman 1802, we look for inspiration all over the farm (and even all over the world).  For our latest, we didn’t have to look very far or very hard at all.  One day about two years ago, in a conversation on the stoop of Farmer John’s house, he mentioned […]
